My interest in letterpress printing began with a casual visit to the Bibliography Room at the Robertson Davies Library, at Massey College (University of Toronto) in summer 2019. From the first time I held a composing stick and typeset my first line, I was hooked, and was fortunate to continue learning through an informal apprenticeship. I have since won a teaching equipment grant from the Centre for Teaching and Learning at the University of Toronto Scarborough to buy an antique tabletop printing press (Model 3 Improved) and other tools to introduce students to the material processes of traditional printing and book production.

As of 2021, I am a happy owner of a Westman & Baker 10×15 press, and am ready to introduce my own private operation: Burnt Island Press (registered here). Stay tuned for updates, samples of my work, and blog posts on my adventures in letterpress.
